Tim Figueras is a fierce champion for youth sports in the South of Market, especially Baseball.  On June 8, 2017, along with Tim, the Friends of Gene Friend/VMD Park advocated to get a batting cage installed at VMD Park.  Tim worked in Soma for more than three decades and was part of the original staff of the Gene Friend Rec Center when it opened in 1990.  Tim was raised in San Francisco, attended SF schools, making him an exemplar of home grown leadership.  Tim worked hard to encourage youth to participate in sports as an alternative to the negative behaviors found all around them and to promote health and safety in Soma.  Tim fought tirelessly to advocate for funding to ensure that low income youth had access to funds for registration fees and for the equipment needed to play Baseball, even supporting a few youth into professional sports.

Tim deserves this honor and the youth of our community deserve the chance to see a local hero memorialized to inspire them to work hard and make change in their own community!
